6:02am
tried to warm her up as much as we can and we just ran back into the water to try to save the next girl. >> reporter: the next girl he is referring to is the 17-year- old who was swept out to sea. another man on the beach actually tried to rescue her, as well. he got caught in the currents and he had to be rest decide. and by the the chp and coast guard were able to get to the 17-year-old, she was unconscious but they loaded her into the helicopter and brought her here. so the last word on her condition was critical condition. the other two seemed to have minor injuries but were also taken to a local hospital. so we'll update you on these conditions as soon as they become available. frank? >> and did they give you any details on how she was injured, the teen there in walnut creek? >> reporter: no. they are not saying anything just that she was unconscious when they rescued her. they are not even saying exactly what condition she was when she arrived here at the hospital after that short helicopter ride but just when she got here she was in

critical condition. >> anne makovec in walnut creek, thank you. a mysterious death for san jose police to investigate. a body was found in the water in coyote creek right there near capitol expressway. that was yesterday afternoon. there were no obvious signs of foul play. it is likely to take a couple of days for the coroner to identify the body and determine the cause of death. armed robbers hit an ice cream truck in marin city this week marking the city's sixth robbery since last month. officers say that three young men pointed a semi-automatic pistol at the ice cream vendor's stomach on tuesday and then demanded cash. they fled with $160. the suspects were seen wearing black hooded sweaters that covered their faces. today we can learn more about a deadly bart shooting in san francisco. the bart board of directors will discuss a general manager's report of the july 3rd incident. bart says officers opened fire after the man lunged at them with a knife inside the civic

6:05am
school year. and that doesn't include other expenses like room, board, books. student groups argue that the uc regents are not making higher education a priority. they say misplaced spending and poor budget decisions are to blame. uc regents, however, say the increase is necessary because of the budget cuts from the state. they defend their position saying that a rate increase is better than laying off staff or closing campuses which would hurt students more. if approved the increases will take effect immediately. they are expecting a lot of student protestors later this morning. the theme, disney characters. they are dressing up as disney characters to highlight what they say is that while they continue to make cuts to higher education, corporations like disney continue to win generous tax breaks from the state. >> are they giving any indication of how big they expect the protests to be? >> reporter: we're not sure. actually they were telling us there was a vigil last night

6:31am
hospital. >> reporter: the 17-year-old girl is here at john muir hospital in walnut creek. that's where she was flown after the rescue the three girls on the beach all from marin county. the 17-year-old is in critical condition. the rescuers as you can see there are having a tough time with that surf. this is at muir beach near tennesee cove. they are hoisting a 17-year-old girl onto a chp helicopter. she and two friends were hang out at the beach. they didn't realize the tide was coming in and they ended up stranded behind a rock and they couldn't get back to the main beach when the waves started pounding. here's how a witness describes it. >> so they are hanging out. the tide was getting out. when they tried to walk back, the wave swept them out. they didn't have time to get
6:32am
back around to the other side. >> reporter: the other two got back to shore on their own but the 17-year-old was swept out to sea. a man on the beach tried to rescue her. then he got caught in the currents, as well. he was just fine in the end. but by the time rescuers got to the girl, she was unconscious. she is in the worst shape of the three. the other two went to a hospital closer to marin county. the 17-year-old here in critical condition. we'll update you on her condition as that becomes available. elizabeth? >> okay, anne makovec live for us this morning in walnut creek, thank you. the coroner in san jose is trying to find out what killed a person whose body was found near a golf course. investigators say a initialer man found the body -- a fisherman found the body in coyote creek last night north of capitol expressway. the body is still unidentified. the giants fan who was beaten after the season opener
6:33am
against the dodgers is improving. bryan stow's family says on their website that his mouth opened for a thermometer on monday. stow is recovering at sf general more than three months after being beaten outside dodger stadium. meanwhile, las vegas police have arrested the girlfriend of the prime beating suspect, giovanni ramirez. she pled not guilty to unrelated drug and weapons charges. the lapd says that the woman is a person of interest in the stow beating case. protests are expected today as university of california regents are likely to approve yet another tuition increase. anser hassan joins from us san francisco where that vote is planned for today. good morning, anser. >> reporter: good morning, grace. yeah, police barricades are already up in anticipation of a student showdown later today here at the ucsf-mission bay campus. they will be protesting the regents meeting and on that
6:34am
agenda, another round of rate hikes. uc regents will vote on a 9% increase in tuition for all 10uc schools. that in addition to an 8% increase already approved for the fall semester. so combined, that means students will pay an extra $1,900 this year, and over $12,000 in total for the school year. that doesn't include room, board, books or other expenses. the recently passed california state budget cut $650 million from higher education. so uc regents are poised to increase tuition to help fill the gap. they say the rate increase is better than the alternative, such as cutting staff or closing satellite campus and point to improvements like this new campus here at uc mission bay but student groups disagree. they say misplaced spending and poor budget decisions are to blame. they are also concerned about recent pay increases to some uc executives. now, if approved, this will be
6:35am
the ninth increase in just the past eight years. another interesting note, the student protestors are going to dress up as disney characters. they say doing so is to highlight that while higher education is cut in the state, big corporations like disney continue to receive big tax breaks. grace? >> all right. we'll be watching. anser hassan in san francisco, thank you. time now is 6::35. time for an update on traffic. first to weather. clouds at the coast pushing into the golden gate not as far inland as yesterday and we have sunshine in store for this afternoon. but it is a little chilly relatively speaking. you can see the differences from where we're supposed to be seasonally to where we are today. pretty significant ranging between 8 and 14 degrees below average. definitely keeping it on the cooler side. there is a warmup in store though and i'll tell you when you can put that winter coat
6:36am
away in just a little bit. but let's check in with gianna first and see how we're doing on those roadways. >> thank you, kristy. we have some video we shot earlier in this trouble spot in san jose of guadalupe parkway, a sinkhole that's causing problems this morning. this is southbound guadalupe parkway -- we'll get that video in just a second -- guadalupe parkway southbound right at alma. the off-ramp is shut down as well as the right lane. again it could cause problems for the morning commute because they are saying at least noon as to when all the stuff will be cleared up. southbound 87 right lane shut down. let's go to the maps. we have reports of an injury accident working your way through antioch westbound 4 near a street. motorcycle involved possible lanes blocked, as well. it is causing a backup in an already congested area. we are slow anyway from hillcrest to loveridge. 12 miles per hour in some spots. also the altamont pass stacking up, 20 minutes right now westbound 580 from the altamont pass to 680. we'll check the bay bridge coming up. back to you. >> thank you. california legislators want to introduce a new bill inspired by the casey anthony
6:37am
trial. caylee's law would make it a crime to fail to quickly report a child's disappearance or death. they are seeking this change after anthony was acquitted of murder in her 2-year-old daughter's death. this bill would make it a felony not to report a missing child within 48 hours or a child's death within two hours. there are similar bills pending in at least 17 other states. robbers held up an ice cream truck at gunpoint in marin city marking the 6th robbery since last month. three young men pointed a semi- automatic pistol at the ice cream vendor's stomach on tuesday, according to officers, and demanded cash. they ran away with about $160. the suspect was seen wearing black hooded sweatshirts that could have had their faces. and in just a few hours from now, the bart board of directors will discuss the deadly shooting at the civic center station in san francisco. they are expected to focus on the general manager's report of the july 3 incident. bart says officers opened fire
6:38am
after the man lunged at them with a knife. the agency has promised to release surveillance video once the investigation is complete. some backlash this morning about two federal agents from i.c.e. who are now working side by side with san jose police. more than 100 people gathered at the sacred heart community service center last night to ask chief chris moore to get rid of the two agents. latino community leaders say neighbors have stopped reporting crimes because they fear deportation. the chief addressed the crowd with the help of a translator. >> people are getting killed. i have to do something. [ foreign language ] >> people are sad at this point but more than sad we're really energized and it just brings us together even more to continue to fight against this and be able to look for real solutions. >> chief moore says the agents will be closely supervised and that they will only be looking
6:39am
for gang members. he says he is staking his reputation on this decision. time now 6:38. tensions are running high at the white house debt talks. the threat by one credit agency that may help break the logjam. plus the countdown is on for harry potter fans everywhere. does the final movie work its magic? ah, we have liam mayclem weighing in on it. >> we will find out. and the market just opened about 10 minutes ago. taking a check on the early numbers, there you go, all up so far. dow jones industrial average up 3 points. coming up, we'll have a full update from kcbs moneywatch reporter jason brooks. ,,,,,,,,

6:42am
good morning. we'll start off with breaking news. out of oakland, we have police activity at the intersection near chabot and ivanho. lots of activity on scene. we are getting more information in, but again police activity. we have a news crew and chopper 5 headed to the scene. and as soon as that information comes in we'll be sure to get it to you. right now, let's jump to the freeways and get you updated on the morning commute. here's a live look at oakland northbound 880. not too bad as you head into the maze, southbound 880
6:43am
problem-free. you're accident-free all the way to hayward, 15 minutes northbound towards the maze. once you get to the bay bridge, a bit of a backup. metering lights are on so a little slow. in fact, those sluggish conditions continue up the incline. you will see extra volume across the upper deck into san francisco. not bad though if you are commuting out of san francisco into oakland. it may slow you down here. we have a stalled vehicle westbound 24 connector to eastbound 580 blocking the roadway. tow crews are on scene. also, antioch we are dealing with some slow and go conditions. accident westbound highway 4 near a street. it was blocking lanes but look at that. it's actually improved just a bit. they may have got it over to the right shoulder. we're still seeing some slightly slower speeds between hillcrest to loveridge but a bit of an improvement. we have been monitoring the situation in san jose. we have southbound guadalupe parkway between 280 and alma where the right lane is still shut down for a sinkhole as well as the alma off-ramp so again they are saying noon until those lanes will re-open if not later than that. so it's going to take time to clear. right now 101 is probably your best bet to avoid any delays and as you work your way
6:44am
through 2 8not bad, downtown -- 280 not bad, downtown san jose problem-free. 880/237 looking good. here's kristy with your forecast. i'm ready for the warmup. >> everybody is. today we are not quite there yet. continuing to see cool conditions outside and cloud cover as well as you can see here in this shot around the bay. a little bit of cloud cover, sun peeking through. going to see some sun by this afternoon and temperatures though cool out the door this morning. partly cloudy start inland. cloud cover all day at the coast and drizzle. inland 70s, mild conditions same as yesterday. the bay a mix of sun and clouds making it to the mid-60s there. coastline staying gray all day long, could see breezy conditions, and might see a little drizzle there as well this afternoon. so cloud cover not stretching quite as far inland as we saw yesterday. so you can see here on satellite still seeing plenty
6:45am
of clouds here along the coastline and pushing through into parts of the bay, as well. a little bit of clearing around the bay by this afternoon. that low slowly sliding through keeping us cool throughout the bay area and bringing that fog as well and we are going to warm up eventually but for today those temperatures 10 to 15 degrees below average for july. 69 is the high today in los altos. same story for mountain view. 71 the high in milpitas, 7 campbell and los gatos. 65 the high in oakland. 72 in walnut creek. and 76 is the high in antioch and in brentwood. in the north bay similar conditions mix of 60s and 70s. cool at stinson beach, napa 74. benicia 68 degrees today. this pattern continues for tomorrow. you're seeing similar conditions here and then this weekend, slight warmup in store and then we really start to warm up as we make our way into monday, tuesday and wednesday. so bumping those temperatures up into the high 80s, closer to
6:46am
where we should be for july. those inland locations nice and warm. and mostly sunny skies. back to you, ladies. >> wait until sunday. [ laughter ] >> all right. new numbers this morning on unemployment and retail sales. here's jason brooks with kcbs and cbsmoneywatch.com. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, grace. good morning, elizabeth. some decent news for the job market for a change. first time weekly unemployment claims dropped by 22,000 last week to 405,000 the lowest in three months. need to see that get below 400,000 but after the past two disappointing reports for may and june, we'll take any decent news on the job market. absolutely critical to getting the economy going in the right direction because that will fuel consumer spending. as a result of the weak job market, we didn't see a whole lot of consumer spending in june. retail sales increased by only .1%. and that was mainly a function of higher automobile sales. you factor those out, sales are flat. and in the drop in oil prices,
6:47am
as a result gasoline prices, really socked it to gas stations. sales dropped 1.3%. and that drop in oil prices also impacted wholesale side inflation that fell about .4% last month. and that will probably result in a drop for consumer inflation, as well. that's good news for the fed as it tries to balance low employment as well as higher inflation over the prior year. the u.s. debt dilemma continues to confound the markets. moody's warning that it may have to downgrade the u.s. credit rating if a debt deal is not struck by that august deadline. that could have a big impact on the market. stock market right now is heading in a positive direction thanks to the dro in unemployment. all three indices are up. after the closing bell we'll get the 2nd quarter earnings report from google. it's expected to show that its costs are rising quite a bit.
6:48am
a lot of analysts think it spent $200 million in the quarter in launching the latest social networking exercise google plus. back to you guys. >> just excited about the decent jobless report. >> reporter: yeah. i mean, the key thing is you need to see a trend. one week is not enough. we need to see this trend continue for several weeks before we can start feeling better about things. >> let's hope it does. jason brooks with kcbs and cbsmoneywatch.com, thank you. i'm getting excited because the countdown is on. we have only 17 hours until the final harry potter movie is released. >> you're going to be watching the midnight screening? >> i might be. >> we have a 2:00 wake-up call.
